A 5k non-competitive run where families, artists and revelers unite with light!
7:00 PM registration.
9:00 PM race
Get ready to don your neon and have a night to remember! Electric Eve is a pulsating, kaleidoscope of light and sound at Misquamicut State Beach in Westerly, Rhode Island on Friday, June 27, 2014. This brand new, "this is amazing!", gotta love the energy and good-vibes-event will incorporate adrenaline pumping music and colorful special effects onto a fun filled 5K megawatt course. It's fun, it's funky and it's for the whole family! The dazzling light designs will be created by industry experts, local artists and fun loving business owners. Electric Eve will be a neon glow run of epic proportions!
Don't want to run - but do want to come for the fun, laser-light show, and dance party?
General admission is $10 for ages 12+, $5 for ages 7-11. (Children 6 and under are admitted free).
Spectators will look on as the throng of illuminated runners make their way through a 5-kilometer luminous passage. Buildings along the course will be decked out with a full spectrum of neon lights. Several themed areas of the course will be designed to engage participants in the fun, such as a sea-life section with giant starfish, sea horses and jellyfish. Atlantic Avenue in Westerly will be transformed into "Electric Avenue" for one amazing technicolor night that you won't want to miss!
Dress to Impress
This is your license to "glow wild" for a night and there will be glow swag a plenty! Be dazzled, be silly, and twinkle like the star that you are! All the cool kids are wearing costumes, neon tu-tus, wigs and blinking sunglasses. Create your own impressive outfit at home or purchase these novelties at the event. A costume contest will take place with cool prizes for winners. Face painters will be on hand to paint with reflective paints so you light up as you pass under the black lights.
Pre-Party 7:00 8:45 PM
Come to the Pre-Party for music, face painting, the Flashion Show Contest, Moon Walk, Giant Inflatable slide, food, great photo opportunities, stretching, novelty sales, neon glow cotton candy, and much more!
A Party to Rave About
The event finale is a high voltage after-party, where a DJ Don Dada will play a perfect blend of techno, hip hop and electronic vibes, accompanied by lasers illuminating the night sky. DJ Don is an entertainer... a turntablist... and a high energy artist excited to take you on his musical journey. Fog machines and CO2 jets will help create a high-adrenaline atmosphere as attendees dance with their glow-in-the-dark compatriots.
Beer Garden - Sponsored by Grey Sail Brewing
Those over the age of 21 will be able to enjoy a Beer Garden located on the adjacent property of Sam's Snack Bar. (Thank you to Norm from Sam's Snack Bar... what a great guy!) Beer is available for purchase starting at 7:00 PM and last call will be 10:45 PM. TIPS certified professionals will be serving the beer. All beer will be removed from sight at 11:00 PM. Patrons of the beer garden must have paid a race entry or an event spectator entry, and must show proof of identification via driver's license. Beer must be consumed in that specific area of the event only. We do not recommend drinking beer before the race, and are providing it starting at 7:00 PM primarily as a courtesy to those spectators who opt not to run. Drinking and running is not a great mix... Why risk a belly ache and ruin all the fun? Once you complete the course, it's a much better time to enjoy a libation and watch the laser light show. We care about you, and all our guests, so please drink responsibly. 100% of the proceeds from the Beer Garden are being generously donated by Grey Sail Brewing to the Greater Westerly-Pawcatuck Area Chamber of Commerce to support Electric Eve.

Arthur Murray Dancers
Arthur Murray has an edge! Their fresh demonstration at Electric Eve will not be not your "mother's" dance class! Watch as Julia and Anthony show the world that ballroom is more than just gowns and glitter. Dancing offers not only great exercise, but also acts as a channel for expression. Their participation will include a demonstration of the classic genre as well the stylized and modern spin on the infamous hustle and swing after the run. Ask Julia or Anthony to dance, and receive a free complimentary lesson!
